The mailing says the Clinton administration proposed a foreign aid bill this week that does not include any specific funds set aside for the Development Fund for Africa; this almost $800 million a year appropriation has been critical to maintaining funding for health, education and economic development projects in Africa. The mailing asks people to urge their Senators and Representative to support restoration of the special earmarked funds for Africa in the new Foreign Aid Bill. The mailing discusses the U.S. Foreign Aid Program, the Reagan administration, USAID, Israel, Egypt, Russia, grassroots pressure, Congress, countries of the former Soviet Union, appropriation, earmark, and multilateral agencies. • Clinton Administration Draft Foreign Aid Legislation Does Not Include Funds Explicitly Set-Aside for Africa • Background on the Development Fund for Africa • Current Situation
